Nestled against the spectacular Rawlinson Ranges in Western Australia, 330 kilometres west of Uluru, is Warakurna Community. The local art centre Warakurna Artists opened in 2005 and is a not-for-profit organisation fully owned and governed by Ngaanyatjarra people.

Warakurna Artists and Kayili Art work with Ngaanyatjarra artists from the remote Ngaanyatjarra Lands in Western Australia. Warakurna, Wanarn and Patjarr are the remote communities these art centres service; Warakurna is approximately 330 kilometres from Uluru near the border with the Northern Territory, Wanarn is another 100 kilometres west, and Patjarr is approximately 180 kilometres north west of Wanarn.

Warakurna Artists and Kayili Art are energetic, creative spaces where men and women paint and share Tjukurrpa (traditional law and culture) and contemporary stories.

Passing on these important stories to young people is a critical means of keeping culture vital and strong. The art centre plays an important role in the community, providing cultural and social benefits in addition to economic returns. They facilitate the production, distribution and sale of the artists’ artworks. The paintings are vibrant and diverse, reflecting each artist’s unique style, stories and connection to country.

The centre works closely with Wanarn Aged Care, providing an outreach program to patients within that facility as well as run weekly children workshops. They also run regular exhibitions with established galleries both nationally and internationally.
